Marsala: the mood of the moment

Pantone Color of the Year Marsala

Wine inspired Marsala, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015, is a bold shade that simply begs to be used in a way that highlights its richness. While its history may be hundreds of years old, dating back hundreds of years to the wines of Sicily, Pantone’s selection of this shade for 2015 speaks to its relevance as a contemporary color statement.

  •  Modern: Marsala, when paired with bright orange, gray and red brings warmth to a room with just a hint of earthy balance.
  •  Down to Earth: The earthy tone of Marsala makes it a perfect shade to use for a rug that makes a statement. Vibrant, but not too bright, it stands out as something different while simultaneously grounding the room.
  • Go bold: Rich and elegant, Marsala is a perfect color to use in a bold way in a small space. Add some global charm with textiles and accents from the Middle and Far East for a look that leads us to believe we have been transported across the globe.
